We've got an important Shine a Light action to share with you today, but first a quick update and a big thank you for participating on our last action:

In December, we asked you to Shine a Light on Ann P. and your response was overwhelming. Close to 1,000 people left messages of hope and encouragement for Ann as she continues to battle against cancer and overcome the challenges of M.S.  Ann wanted to share this with all of you:

When Randy Paynter implemented his idea to "shine one glorious sunbeam of collective love" on an individual, he knew that a few simple words, when spoken or written with a full heart, can make all the difference in the world to the recipient. Imagine the effect when multiplied hundreds of times!

As the recipient of one such glorious sunbeam of collective love, I am deeply moved by the kind words and love flowing in my direction.

It is every bit as glorious to be part of the sunbeam as it is to receive it. Shine on!


Today's Shine a Light is a message of love and gratitude. Hugh MacDougall has been a member of Care2 for the past several years and a long-time protector of nature and the Earth. Hugh passed away on January 28th leaving behind two children -- Ellen and Peter -- and many friends.

Hugh was a lover of travel and finding "people-free" places to explore. He grew up in Scotland, lived for several years in Australia and spent time in China, New Zealand and many other countries. In addition to his poetry, his images from these trips will be a lasting memory of his life and what he enjoyed most.

Please take a moment to post a comment of gratitude for Hugh’s kind devotion to the Earth, and we will make sure that these messages are shared with  his family.  Hugh will be greatly missed by his family, friends -- especially those that shared his commitment to Good, and all those that had an opportunity to be touched by his passion for Nature. Your words can mean so much to them during this difficult time. Thank you.
